New Documentation Script versions

I’ve shared the new version of the documentation scripts here: https://unifysolutions.jira.com/wiki/display/FIMTEAMCOM/Automatic+Word+Documentation

The best new feature is in Document_SyncConfig.ps1 which now includes an end-to-end attribute flow map based around Metaverse object/attribute – so showing all IAFs and EAFs going via each Metaverse attribute.

Is Identity Management about cutting staff?

I was kind of shocked recently to hear about an organisation that had assumed implementing FIM would lead directly to cutting Service Desk positions. Over the years I’ve delivered a good number of successful IdM solutions that have taken all sorts of tedious, error-prone tasks out of people’s hands… but I don’t think any of them have led to actual job cuts – and I would have been astounded if people thought they would.

“AttributeNameViolatesSchema” FIM MA export error

I’ve just been troubleshooting sporadic export errors through the FIM MA in a Test environment. The export would fail a couple of times in a row with a failed-modification-via-web-services or failed-creation-via-web-services and the detailed error said something about “AttributeNameViolatesSchema”. Eventually the export would succeed all on its own, without anything else changing. Continue reading ›

Word 2013 deleting pictures – “The linked image cannot be displayed”

Off-topic for this blog, but this one had been frustrating me for a while, and various attempts to google solutions turned up nothing helpful. Continue reading ›

Requests logging, Sync logging

Listening to Andy van den Biggelaar’s FIM Team User Group session on Reporting this week reminded me that I haven’t shared the latest versions of my Requests and Approvals archiving scripts, and I also haven’t shared the scripts I now use to log Sync runs and convert import and export log files to CSV, ready for upload to SQL (or something else, like SPLUNK, if that’s more your thing).

So here they are.

Thanks to Unify for supporting both the sharing of scripts developed on their time via the FIM Team Community Scripts site, and even more so for supporting the FIM Team User Group which, I only realised after the session was done, is already one year old!!

Documentation Script for the Sync Service

I’ve uploaded a Sync Service auto-documentation script to the FIM Team Scripts site, to go with the Portal one I shared a couple of months back. You can get them both here: https://unifysolutions.jira.com/wiki/display/FIMTEAMCOM/Automatic+Word+Documentation

 

Requests freezing on PostProcessing and Validated

I’ve had a head scratcher in the last week. A Dev environment, everything thought to be working perfectly according to the tests we’d done so far, which had just involved a few identities at a time. But then we tried to do some bulk tests, registering 300 people at once, and things did not go well. It would get through 20 or 30 of them and then the requests queue just seemed to freeze. The Portal was still responsive but the number of requests sitting in PostProcessing and Validated status did not change, even when left overnight.

Finding Connector Space objects with a Manager when the Metaverse object has none

I was asked to evaluate the impact of ticking “Allow Nulls” on the AD export flow for ‘manager’ when it was realised that some people had a manager set in AD, while in FIM they had none.

This can be a hard change to test in Dev or Test environments which don’t have the full set of production data. However if you make the change in Production you may well find yourself with a lot of undesired exports queued. So before doing anything I wanted to get an idea about how many people have a manager set in AD, but none in the Metaverse.

FIM Event Broker – why wouldn’t you buy it?

I love FIM Event Broker, and that’s not just because I work for the company that wrote it. No, it’s because it’s such an incredibly usable, powerful and downright quality product designed to make FIM scheduling and event-driven processing a simple reality, and I find I just can’t do without it any more. It’s kind of like going back to hand-washing dishes after having a dishwasher <<shudder>>.

And what’s more we’re practically giving it away – it costs less than an average day’s consulting fee!
